Representative Text

1 The voice of thy conscience oft whispers,
Believe on the Lord and be saved,
And turn from the path of transgressors;
Believe on the Lord and be saved.

Chorus:
Be saved, be saved,
Believe on the Lord and be saved,
Be saved, be saved,
Believe on the Lord and be saved.

2 A voice in compassion is crying,
Believe on the Lord and be saved,
And cease from your sorrow and sighing;
Believe on the Lord and be saved. [Chorus]

3 God's voice and His goodness are calling,
Believe on the Lord and be saved;
The judgment of death is appalling;
Believe on the Lord and be saved. [Chorus]

4 The voice of the Spirit is pleading,
Believe on the Lord and be saved,
While loved ones are now interceding,
Believe on the Lord and be saved. [Chorus]
